Reorganizing your Resources

If you’ve been struggling with scarcity in all its forms, this Mercury Rx is for you!

With this Mercury Rx, you are rethinking themes around your resources and resourcefulness.

Creating stability, sustainability and maximizing what you already have instead of overspending your resources (money, time, emotional/spiritual energy, physical energy and capacity).

While resources are ultimately infinite and abundant, you don’t’ want to mess around with the Universe by wasting a drop.

Uncovering WHY you might be overspending (or even not spending) your resources, MRx asks you to rethink and redshift your mindset. Especially when it comes to Taurean themes around value, worthiness, enoughness, and money mindset. Scarcity has a funny way of expressing in the outerworld through undervaluing your own wisdom and contributions leading to thin bank accounts. As well as overspending on things that are not values driven leading to hoarding or more scarcity.

Because Taurus is fixed earth, stable and embodied, during this MRx, you may feel like your body at times has more clarity than your mind. Indeed, reconnect to the intelligence of your body and your second brain in your gut. These intelligences want a voice at allowing for your reset and reshifting. Check in to make sure you are listening to the wisdom that lives in your flesh and blood.

Your goals over the next few weeks o bf this reset cycle is to reactivate your thoughts and actions that have felt stagnant and stuck by first slogging through the mental mud to uncover your scarcity mindset that causes you to devalue yourself then saying NO to things that don’t fit into your values – in both your life and Work.

By the end of this reset, you’ll clarify your values, your enoughness, your ability to ask for what you want, and say no to what is not aligned. You’ll see You’ll set better boundaries and plans around all your resources from money to capacity by noticing all your overspending resource leaks.

Say goodbye to scarcity mindset and hello to abundance thinking because you know that by saying no to misaligned opportunities, you say yes to what is yours: peace and prosperity.

6 Things to do this Mercury Rx in Taurus

6 Things to do this Mercury Rx in Taurus


  1. Reshift sustainable resources/ing (money, time, energy, capacity)
    What resources have you been wasting? And WHY have you been wasting them? No judgment, only curiosity so that you can bring awareness to how scarcity mindset keeps you in a “grabby” mode that ultimately leads to resource waste. How can you maximize your resources once you understand the fear embodied in scarcity mindset that had control?
  2. Reconsider how YOU are enough
    How are the ways you are not taking up physical or energetic space? What are the worthiness feelings that come up? Who’s stories are they? From your family? Society? Culture? Capitalism? Colonization? Reflect on the inner oppressor that you’ve allowed to colonize your mind and see how you can take up YOUR space.
  3. Regulate mindset through embodiment
    What tools and skill sets do you need to return to that allow you to calm your mind, body and soul to increase your capacity to take aligned risk in your Work?
  4. Redefine wisdom in the body
    How does your body communicate to you? Where do you sense expansions, contractions or other indications that you need to hear?
  5. Reevaluate your value-add and pricing
    How are you adding value in the marketplace? What is the true result of transformation that you are giving to your people? And how can you share that value in how you communicate what you do? Is it time to adjust your pricing based on your clarified value-add?
  6. Resource abundance thinking by saying no
    To what will you say NO to to create boundaries based on your values in your life and Work? How can you notice scarcity mindset tricking you into accepting every opportunity (lies that you need th money just this one time even though red flags are everywhere)? What will you begin to measure that will allow you to have sustainable growth? Time? freedom? Belonging? True visibility? Feelings of peace? What is the marker of true abundance and success to you? Hint, ask your Moon, Venus and 2H cusps for aligned values.
